The Los Feliz Village Business Improvement District presents the 19th Annual Los Feliz Village Street Fair, this Sunday, July 22, 2012. According to police estimates, last year’s attendance was about 20,000 people strong. The event is held on Hollywood Blvd, between Hillhurst and Vermont Avenues. As posted on the LFBID’s website, “[Los Feliz] is a kind of community that celebrates its uniqueness and the biggest expression of that is the Los Feliz Village Street Fair!”
Many Los Feliz /Silverlake residents were excited about the new banner posted on the former Circut City parking lot fence stating: WHOLE FOODS “COMING SOON”. It was another way our community was going organic & gourmet. However, LosFelizToday.com has come to find out that the banner is actually false.
The editors of Los Feliz Today asked a couple of members of the GGPNC for an update since the last elections in March. Jessica Kornberg has shared her progress and views with us below.

Papa’s Place is having their official “Grand Opening” tomorrow, Saturday, August 28, 2010. Doors will open to the public from 12 noon to 6pm, then a private staff meeting on Sunday, and regular working hours again on Monday (11am-9pm). The owner, Cengiz Karachua, has dedicated the unique Turkish-German Deli Style restaurant to his father, who served the Los Feliz community as the Golden Needle Tailoring for 23 years prior. His father had always wished for his son to open a restaurant and about two years after his passing, his dreams will be realized. An official menu had not yet been finalized, but the manager stated the Turkish – German take out style establishment will be unique. Sauerkraut and sausages…Mediterranean sandwiches…burgers..and a bakery!
Yesterday, the LA Zoo announced that 22 of the 23 hatched brand new Komodo Dragons now reside at the Zoo, from eggs laid in January by their mother, Lima. Only 14 to 20 inches long now with a weight of 3-4 ounces, they are reported to grow up to 200 lbs or more, being the largest lizard in the world! Komodo Dragons have a reputation for having a poisonous bite.
As of July 18, 2010, the Los Feliz Library’s hours have been reduced(they are now closed on Sundays and Mondays and close much earlier) and part of the staff has been laid off. This also affects us as a community with fewer access to services and all that a library can offer.
If you are like most Angelinos, you spend a great deal of time in your car driving around and have noticed the new traffic light at the corner of Finley and Hillhurst Ave., that was just installed in June. The Los Feliz community needed a traffic light at that location and had been asking for one as a result of many speeding motorists and traffic accidents. The Los Feliz residents and community members gathered to “turn on the light” on June 22, 2010. Among the witnesses was Councilmember Tom LaBonge, who stated to have made funding possible for this light by the CRA, “I’m thankful to the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation for funding and installing this necessary light,” Councilmember LaBonge said. “This will make this intersection much safer for drivers and pedestrians in Los Feliz.”
In addition to all this, an official Blessing of the Light and Crosswalk ceremony was held by Father Christopher Kelley of St.Mary of the Angels Anglican Church, which is located at the intersection. Mya Rose Pecchia, a 5 year old girl, had the honor of flipping the switch on to the new traffic signal at 1 PM.
